Tables of Concordance

Tables of Concordance (ToCs) have been prepared to help readers navigate between the previous version of the Local Government Act (Pre-RS2015) and the current Act (RS2015).


ToCs are lists that connect sections from an old Act to the corresponding sections in a new, newly amended, or revised Act. The Tables can be used to determine specifically where a given section number in an Act resides in the revised version and vice-versa.


Table 1 allows users to find where sections in the current Local Government Act (RS2015) were located in the pre-revision Act (pre-RS2015).  Table 2 allows users to look up sections they are familiar with in the pre-revision Local Government Act (Pre-RS2015) to determine where those sections are now located in the current Act (RS 2015). 


The Tables of Concordance are provided as a public service and should not be viewed as legal documents. The Tables of Concordance do not replace a close and careful reading of the legislation. The ministry assumes no responsibility for errors or omissions.
